My good friend and I love to go to El Salto Mexican Restaurant for lunch when we get together. They have great food and their prices are unbeatable. Last time I was there I ordered a vegetarian taco. It came with refried beans. I couldn't eat it fast enough to keep it from making the taco shell soggy. Well, that was a disappointment at a place where we are usually not ever disappointed. Maybe my problem is I think I have perfected the best vegetarian taco at home. And it's a very easy and quick dinner to make. I thought I'd share it.
You will need:
1 pkg soy crumbles ( I use Morningstar Farms Recipe Starter)
1 tbsp Olive oil
1 pkg taco seasoning
Mexican style shredded cheese
lettuce of your choice
small container of light sour cream
plum tomatoes diced (optional)
Start by browning the soy crumbles in a pan with the olive oil. Add the taco seasoning and water according to the seasoning package instructions. Once all the water is absorbed and seasoning mixed in, it can be removed from the heat. Assemble your tacos by placing the browned seasoned crumbles in first, taco sauce, cheese, tomatoes, lettuce and a dollop of light sour cream. Enjoy.
They are super good. My husband is the meat hound in the family and even he says they are very good and satisfying. Hope you like them too.
